“Proffesional and Efficient Whale Watching Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We went out three times with Futurismo and each time had amazing encounters with different whales and dolphins.

We felt at all times safe and thought the trips entirely worth what we paid for them.

“Excellent Customer Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I was travelling alone and was on Sao Miguel Island for several days in June 2012.

The weather was not good and made enquiries with Fururismo about whalewatching and swimming with dolphins. There guidance advice was excellent and so was their communication whether it was face-to-face late in the day at their booth/office on the ocean front or by mobile phone or text.

I will be returning to the Azores and will use their services again..

Highly recommended

“Professional and really well informed staff make dolphin and whale watching a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Spent four hours on the small boat and was very impressed. The crew know their stuff and share their enthusiasm for the dolphins and whales. Small tip - bring layered clothing - it can get chilly going back into port in a headwind.
